    Anton Du Beke is set to front a baking series with his family on This Morning for the Christmas season.

    According to new reports, the professional dancer, 54, will be joined by his wife Hannah Summer and their twin children George and Henrietta, three, for a three-part special as ITV bosses aim to secure him as a show regular. 

    The choreographer – who recently stood in as judge on Strictly Come Dancing – will treat fans to a look into his home life, which will see him and his loved ones find the perfect tree, make wreaths and bake up a storm in their kitchen.

    On making stained glass biscuits, a festive trifle and mince puffs, the ballroom star told The Mirror: ‘Being able to bake gives me great joy and being able to do it with the children too is just marvellous.

    ‘It’ll be very festive indeed. Christmas time for us is joyous and very traditional, and with two three-and-a-half year olds it’s full of fun and excitement.’

    An ITV source added of the former baker’s upcoming stint: ‘Anton was a hit previously on the show and now he is even more in demand after his fabulous stint on Strictly where he really showed off his presenting style and warmth. ITV were determined to snap him up for a longer series.’

    MailOnline has contacted representatives for Anton and ITV for further comment.

    Earlier this month, the media personality sat on the Strictly panel as he filled in for Motsi Mabuse – who was forced to isolate for two weeks after travelling to Germany.

    The dance expert recently thanked TV bosses for granting his showbiz wish to become a judge on the hit show.

    Speaking for the first time about his temporary role, Anton told Mail On Sunday: ‘Thank goodness they gave me that job. My ego was around my ankles after getting booted off first this year.’

    The presenter revealed Hannah burst into tears when he got off the phone to the show’s executives, detailing: ‘It came out of the blue.

    ‘We heard Motsi had to go back to Germany and I didn’t know what they were going to do. Then, last Thursday, I got a phone call when they asked me to do it. I was so, so happy.

    ‘I love the show. I love everything about it, so to finally get a chance to judge it was incredible. My wife cried when I told her but I also thought that it would give me something to do for the rest of the series.

    ‘When you’re voted off at the beginning you have nothing to do. It’s easy not to feel part of the show because you’re sitting in the audience watching everyone else dance. So thank goodness they gave me the judging job.

    ‘My children say Daddy either dances or talks on the television, so they saw me talk last weekend and this one.’ 

    Anton Du Bake at Christmas will air on This Morning from Thursday.
